Etna erupts: watch it on our webcam
Etna erupts for the first time in months. See if you can spot the eruption for yourself on our citrus grove webcam, livestreaming directly from beside Mount Etna in Sicily.
Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano, which forms the beautiful backdrop for our Sicilian citrus grove webcam, has erupted for the first time in months, sending a stunning fiery show of lava into the night sky.
The eruption started on Monday 27 February and can be seen from the Arcoria citrus grove farm in Paternò, Sicily where our webcam is located. Giosuè Arcoria, the owner of the citrus grove tells us that “this happens multiple times per year” and that “the spectacle is very beautiful, fantastic and charming”.
Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano at 3,330 metres (10,926 feet), has been largely dormant for the past several months and its last major eruption was in 1992. Local officials have reported that there is no danger to the towns on the mountain.
By Tuesday evening the eruption has eased, but the volcano's eruptions can continue for days or even weeks.
